They Dream of Life in the City

 if I were a painter the walls would be covered with sea, land and sky-scapes...paintings in her art center; people and places! both her work or work she has collected.
   ...posters in her room
I dream of wide open spaces
Meadow-lands out to the sky
They dream of city-places
And ‘everything close by’

I dream of still summer daybreak
Save for the lilting of lark
They dream of high-rise landscapes
And nights that are never dark

I dream of season-tickets
Privy to nature’s treats
While they dream of shows and vendors
Foreign to rural streets

I dream of life in the country
They call it ‘middle of nowhere’
So they dream of life in the city
And highways to everywhere

Victoria just came home from spending a night and day with her friend in the city...she told me it's 'the best and close to everything !'
